No.  You could use one PRAGMA call to find out the column names of that format, 
then use the result to build your query string.  But there's no way to do it 
directly in a single statement.

However, the use of numbered column names is often a sign that your schema 
needs rethinking.  Rather than these being multiple columns in a row, could 
these not be separate rows in a table ?  Then you could have a single SELECT, 
perhaps using group_concat(), retrieve just the values you want.
